How to actually relax

Before I discovered the world of nervous system healing, I thought I knew what it meant to relax. I’d watch Netflix or get some Pad Thai or go for a walk and sure, it was relaxing… but I don’t think I realised that this was “relaxation by distraction”. In other words, I didn’t truly relax … Continue reading

I almost died

SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT 😬 I slam on the brakes. The back wheel starts to slide. Everything goes slo-mo as I roll towards the station wagon in the middle of the road 🚗 Closer. Then closer. Then CLOSER… I start noticing small details on the car. Rust on the car door. Dust on the mud flaps. A dent in … Continue reading

When death stares you in the face

SHIIIIIIIITTTTTTTTTTT!?!???!!!!! I slammed on the brakes and felt the back wheel begin to slide as my body braced for impact.

Change your flesh sack to change your computer

Way back before I discovered the nervous system approach to unleashing the beast, I did what everyone else does: I did everything I could to control my computer (aka. my mind). I remember meditating beside the lake at Chiang Mai University in Thailand. I’d close my eyes and do my best to focus on my … Continue reading

The REAL reason you can’t stop thinking

I remember it like it was yesterday. I was in Thailand at the time. Chiang Mai to be exact (aka. Northern Thailand… the foothills of the Himalayas). Luscious jungles, refreshing waterfalls and motorbikes that I drove wayyyyyy too fast through the mountains 😬 Like every human being ever, I was trying to make my life … Continue reading
